Rebalancing the flow of Qi
How does acupuncture work?
How Can We Help
Acupuncture works by rebalancing the flow of vital energy (Chi or Qi) through the meridian system (channels) by means of the placement of fine needles at specific acupuncture points on the body. The insertion of the needles feels to the patient like a tiny insect sting.
It is very safe and is suitable for adults (including the elderly) and children. Some people experience mild and often temporary side effects, such as pain, minor bleeding or bruising where the needles puncture the skin, and occasionally general drowsiness.
Acupuncture has been proven to work very well for fixing muscular and skeletal disorders. It also works well on conditions such as sciatica, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, back pain, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and problems that may occur after a stroke.
